SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Feb. 7, 2013 – Prepare for it to rain scarlet when the ladies of Scarlet Blade get in the fighting mood! Aeria Games, a leading global publisher of free-to-play online games, has revealed a torrent of player vs. player (PvP) information for the highly anticipated massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), which has just wrapped up a successful closed alpha test.

Fans who crave competition with their fellow players will be happy to learn that several different PvP modes will be available at launch, with even more coming soon after in the next content update. For those who wish to test their mettle alone, 1v1 duels will be a staple PvP feature, but larger battlefields provide a backdrop for a truly epic scale of faction warfare.

A sprawling open-world PvP zone allows players to group up and battle huge bosses that drop highly sought-after loot. Many players from both factions compete for the kill against these bosses, setting the stage for frantic clashes—and lots of dead bodies. An even bigger PvP zone is set for the game’s first major content update, along with a new 6v6 arena-style format.

Scarlet Blade will also launch with two unique battlefields, the 30v30 Janus map and 80v80 Turnpike map, with several more planned for release soon after launch. Players can earn Rank Points and loot dog tags from dead enemies in all forms of PvP combat, and trade them in for items, unique emotes, and powerful PvP-exclusive gear.

Scarlet Blade is free to download, and like all Aeria Games titles, is free-to-play. Players can sign up now at
